Thoughts are a by product of belief, just as energy is a by product of consciousness. The mind has thoughts for body processing and has created a fracture within the mind that are the product of thoughts run by time. They are transitory, illusionary projections and as thought within the past or future will maintain the false perception of fear or anxiety, the associated belief product is what your cells take as signal, through energetic transmutation creating the reflection in your external environment.
The mind facilitates the functions of the body; it has also evolved conditioning creating an artificial intelligence ego that is fed through thought in the false perception of self definitions limiting you to somebody. It continually lures you to live in the mind through thoughts of past or future, which do not exist; like the ego, time is man made and only perpetuates the illusion of suffering in its many forms.
While you live in the time based thought mind you are never aware in the present moment, as the mind cannot tolerate the space and light of presence. In becoming conscious of the stories you are running in the mind, you have the ability to stop them by becoming fully aware both externally and internally in this infinite moment. In developing mind emptiness opens the self realization as no-body, the endless, timeless awareness you are beyond the sum of the body, you transmute belief. In this space of awareness is the full force and abundance of life itself.
